    II. Less indication for "healthy" men
    III. "May" prevent issues as we get older
  II. Methods:
   I. Pellets - painful, less fat, scars
   II. Injections - less painful
    I. 2 weeks - big dose, taper off over time, intramuscular
    II. 1 week - less highs/lows, easier to remember, traditionally intramuscular
    III. Daily - It's a routine, less painful, subcutaneous
  III. Testing
   I. If you have symptoms
   II. Before for baseline
   III. After a month or so to see your levels
